    I know plenty of girls that are piss off when someone call them female.
    They really hate to being called by this word.
    I dont mind being call male.

    Question to woman here : do you mind being call female?

    Some girls take the world as a sexist thing. Like saying that woman are inferior to guys or something. I dont mind being called a male .( humans are animals).

    I don't think I've ever met a woman that was upset by being called female.

    I don't think it's the word that anyone has a problem with. It's usually the tone used that will raise hackles.

    Female vs. Fe-male

    One is a mere indication of gender, the other seems to imply a categorization based on the gender.

    That twinge in your intestines
    How do you pronounce it. If you just say "female", most women aren't offended. If you pronounce it "cow" or "cunt" or "bitch" they tend to take umbrage.

    The feminist girls are usually the ones that hate being called like that, not matter the tone .

    It's all context:

    "WORSHIP ME FEMALE!" will probably get a response you don't like.

    Wheras: "You happen to be a female" is perfectly nuetral.

    Why would I be upset? That's what I am...and wouldn't want to be anything else! It's fun being a girl...I mean, we get to wear really cute and sexy stilettos and lingerie and drive men crazy with our bodies...ok, I guess men could wear the stilettos and lingerie too, just wouldn't have the same effect!

    If you say OMG! You are a typical female! Then yes, I will likely take offense as that is an insult.

    Exactly! Context and tone are important.

    Gillette and Veronica, I believe, have it right.

    It's not the word, it's a combination of tone and context.

    It used to be condescending to call women "girls". Nowadays they call themselves girls, e.g., "I'm going out with the girls". The meanings of words change with the times. The Rat Pack and men of that generation used to call women broads. It was meant to be a compliment, but I'm not sure whether it's accepted today.

    Helen Reddy in the 1970's. That was a major hit record.
